Bonney Plumbing represents everything we look for in a partner, said Collin Hathaway of Skylight Capital. The company is well run, has a loyal employee base and the sort of sustainable business model we seek. And the Bonney's are fantastic managers and great people. We are excited to be their partners.

Mark and Candace Bonney will remain owners in the business and continue to manage the company. It was very important to us to find the right growth partner for the future of our company, said Mark Bonney of Bonney Plumbing. GW Equity helped us find the right people for our business.

Bonney Plumbing will now have additional capital to expand its services and market territory to better serve its customers and offer employees greater advancement opportunities, and Skylight Capital will see a lot of reward from the growing company, said Eric Sanderson, GW Equity managing director in the transaction.
